CONCEPTS IN FEDERAL TAXATION is designed for a more conceptual, less detailed approach to federal taxation of individuals and corporations in an introductory taxation course. This conceptual approach presents taxation as a small number of unifying concepts, stressing the overriding principles that apply to all specific tax rules and regulations. CONCEPTS IN FEDERAL TAXATION offers an excellent balance between tax concepts and the Internal Revenue Code and regulations, preparing users for a future in the business environment.
